Theoretically, this is part two of the Bird Photography Contest, but I decided to improve a little bit and expand to allow art as well as photos. Isn't that delightful? Get out your cameras, your pencils, your brushes, or whatever your tool of choice is, and get crackin'!

1. All work must be yours, and any references used must be credited.
2. All images must be uploaded on Elftown.
3. All participants are allowed three (3) entries.

Art and photography will be voted on in separate polls to determine a winner. A host's favourite will also be picked from both categories. Each winner will receive a badge.

The deadline of this contest is August 20th, 2009.

Poll winners
Art: 'Scouting' by [Bente]
Photography: 'Eagle' by [Tynuka-Rhytishy]

Host's favourites
Art: 'Barn Owl' by [*Blade*]
Photography: 'Birdling takes his first bike ride' by [Sheepy]

2009-06-26 [Linderel]: Whoot!

2009-07-02 [moira hawthorne]: yah i really dont draw birds... cant really think of any birds Ive drawn... ever!

2009-07-14 [XxTsomexX]: Ugh!! Lol there are my 3 entires.

2009-07-14 [Aeolynn]: very cute Tsome, love the two tiels lol

2009-07-14 [XxTsomexX]: I actually have 3 tiels, 4 parakeets :) There was the baby cardinal we tried to save, but he died :(

2009-07-19 [Aeolynn]: Wow, a jay! You guys own a Jay Sheepy?

2009-07-19 [Sheepy]: Nope! He fell out of his nest (unharmed, just couldn't fly) and my driveway was his home base for about 3 days, with mama flying down to feed him. He was more curious about me than afraid -- I gave in to a silly impulse to get him to step up, which he of course didn't do, but he also didn't hop away. He just looked at me like I was some kinda weirdo.

2009-07-19 [Aeolynn]: Very cute, I've always had a fantasy to help a bird from a fallen nest and keeping them. But I'll settle with parrots till then lol

2009-07-20 [Viking]: That's a really awesome photo, [Sheepy]. And on a Cannondale! =)

2009-07-20 [XxTsomexX]: Lucky -_- the pic of the cardinal I put up flew into the window of my dad's work. He brought it home for me to take care of. Despite my hard work to try and keep him alive, he died the next day :(

2009-07-20 [Sheepy]: Thanks! And yes, I <3 my bike, it's my first "real" one (the bird's, too).

2009-07-28 [Linderel]: Trin <3 Will I be given an artsy Trin-bird as well? :3

2009-07-28 [Triola]: Maaaaaybe... although I need to finish up my portfolio before I do anything else artsy >.<

2009-07-31 [moira hawthorne]: [*Blade*] awesome eagle!

2009-07-31 [*Blade*]: Aww, thanks Moira, i couldnt decide whether to put this or my owl in..i dont want to put both in, but i decided this..glad you like it =)

2009-07-31 [moira hawthorne]: you are allowed to put up 3

2009-08-01 [*Blade*]: Oh i know, i just dont normally like putting multiple entries into competitons, i prefer just doing one..but i might make an exception here lol

2009-08-01 [moira hawthorne]: ahhhh the owl is good... but I like the eagle better
(owl looks a bit unfinished)

2009-08-01 [Sheepy]: ooooooooh my gosh, I want to squish that tiny owl, [maryanne]!!!
